Review: Crush on You – Christie Ridgway

The Baci sisters are on a mission to save the winery that’s been in their family for generations-by transforming it into the perfect wedding destination. If only Alessandra Baci-affectionately known as the “Nun of Napa”-didn’t need the help of tempting neighbor and business rival Penn Bennett.
My thoughts:
I wanna make this short, I am so tired today for some reason.
Right, so I read book 2 first I think, then book 3 and at last book 1. Don’t say anything πŸ˜‰
I wanted to read about Alessandra since day 1. The Nun of Napa. She was sweet and kind. In a way there was not anything special about her. Except for that her husband to be died 15 min before their wedding and the whole town has tip toed around her ever since. Mourning is one thing, but being the living memory of him and no men looking at her is another thing. As I got to know her, I felt sorry for her.
Penn is a bit full of him at first, I wanted to smack him over the head (yes I do love to do that ;). Quite a few times actually. Truth be told, I never truly warmed up to him. I did not feel all gaga over him.
I did rush the end a bit as it took a 3 days to finish the book (just not enough time). I did not like it as much as the other books. And I think that if I had read this one first I would not have gone for the rest. Still it was good, just not special.
I liked it, but it could have been better.

    Wow, her husband to be died 15 minutes before the wedding? That would be traumatizing and awful and I kind of want to give her a hug! Too bad you never warmed up to the hero though, this woman clearly deserves someone special:)
